‌Catholic Q&A: Faith and Politics

25 October 2016
7:00 PM-8:00 PM
The Den, Damen Student Center, Lake Shore Campus

This event is open to Loyola students only. For more information, please contact HankCenter@luc.edu.

Catholic Q&A is one of our most successful events. It is a students-only affair and the setting is intimate and relaxed. This semester's Catholic Q&A will be led by Dr. Amanda Bryan (Political Science). Catholics in America will have a unique role in the 2016 election. More than ever before, Catholic voters are divided; politics and the theology of the "Francis Effect" are cross-cutting on a number of issues important to voters.

Dr. Bryan's remarks will facilitate discussion about the interesting way the "Catholic voter" will impact the 2016 election. Remarks will also be offered about what effects the loss of Antonin Scalia, one of the Supreme Court's most influential Catholic leaders, will have on the election and upcoming Supreme Court cases.
